From the Desk of the Secretary

Hey Running Club!

Awesome job to everyone who braved the rain and cold this weekend to race at NIRCA Nationals! We saw so many great performances - the best way to end our NIRCA outdoor season.

  • Women's 4x800m - team of Francesca Rimer, Melina Edic, Tessa Dombi, Emma Dalan
  • Women's 400m - Emma Dalan
  • Women's 400m hurdles - Emma Dalan
Some other highlights:
  • Women's 200m - Jessica Wrenn, 7th place
  • Women's 800m - Emma Dalan, 2nd place (and a new club record of 2:18.84)
  • Women's 4x400m - team of Emma Dalan, Jaime Donaldson, Tessa Dombi, Francesca Rimer, 5th place
  • Women's Shot Put - Daisy Okpa, 5th place
  • Women's High Jump - Claire Hansel, 4th place
+ a special congratulations to three-time national champion Emma Dalan for receiving the Women's MVP award!!!

Overall, the women's team placed 4th, and the men's team placed 22nd. (But we were first in Emma's heart, and that's what counts.) Unofficial results can be found here. Check out all the photos from this weekend on the Facebook page!

NOTE: While we will still be at the track Tuesday and Thursday for official practice, there will be the option of meeting at the Union at 5:30 PM for a regular run.

Our final meet of the season will be the Otterbein Twilight Invitational this Friday, April 20th. Throws start at 2 PM, and race events start at 4:30 PM. Sign up here by the 17th! Let Will know if you need an excuse to get out of class.

The end of the semester dinner will take place Saturday, April 21st at 7 PM in the Barbie Tootle Room at the Ohio Union. Dress to the nines as you dine the night away in good company. As always, there will be a get together after dinner, happening at 171 E Northwood Ave. Can't wait to see you all there!

That being said, voting for superlatives is now open! Vote here until Thursday, April 19th!
